  • Dealing with challenging times

    When we come to those challenging times that we feel like abandoning our ideals, giving up the struggle and quitting life, it is a stimulating experience to ask ourselves some very important questions, such as: Can good be defeated by evil?  In view of the change that is coming to my life, is anything left for me?  Am I a completely paralyzed person?  Is there something I can do?  Should I just fold my hands and suffer patiently?

  • Does our land need healing?

    Since I moved to LaGrange in 1997 I have joined with a group of pastors to pray for a spiritual revival for our county.  We have not prayed for any one church in particular, or just our churches, but for all the churches of the county.  I have seen many positive things happen over those years.  Average household income has gone up, many projects have enhanced the quality of life and many people have tried hard to be strong community citizens, and our schools continue to be a bright and shining example of excellent public schools.
